    Did any1 else think that there was an error with question 9(ii)? Was the 3/2 - 2/(n+1) + 1/(n+2) meant to be 2/2 - 3/(n+1) + 1/(n+2) like in part (i)???

    Yes, he's talking about MEI. I did get the given answer, using the method of differences though on the last question.

    The first 3 terms before the bit that cancels were something like 3/2 - 1/2 and then + 2/2 on the next line. I wouldn't worry though, doesn't sound like you'd lose more than a mark for that! :o:

    You're talking about MEI.

    I forget the details but I think the last question wa correct. I did it fine and nobody else complained about it.
